Subfactions are frequently encountered in various scenarios. The following are some of the few that can be expected:


ItalianEdit

They do not progress the same as the Romans.

PicentiiEdit

SamnitesEdit

LucaniiEdit

BrutiiEdit

BononiaEdit

This is a city-state which is is considered as Gallo-Etrurian.

Afro-SemiticEdit

CtW info: Rogue Numidians cover a good number of African territories. The Carthaginians also have rogue colonies throughout Spain and the Tyrrhenian and Libya

AgysimbiaEdit

Primarily based on the Numidians although their architecture is closer to Saba.

GaetuliEdit

LibyaEdit

JudaeansEdit

They are based off Carthage , but use a different set of mercenaries, most notably:

Lybim and Afrikanim units are absent; the Peasant Dwelling units all having been replaced with Seleucid or Arab ones. The leader for Rise of the Barbarians is John Hyrcanus; while Hyrcanus is the Judaean leader in Imperivm Invictvm.

CelticEdit

As expected, the Celts have spread almost all over Europe, and are either based off the Arverni, Celtiberians or Britons depending on their location. In most scenarios, each territory invaded is occupied by up to 8 tribes, each ruling over the cities which they were associated with.

CtW info: The Britons cover all of Britain as well as some northern parts of Europe, such as the Gallic coast where they form the Belgic tribes of Britain and the Low Countries. The Arverni on the other hand are used to represent the various Celtic tribes of Eastern Europe and the Middle East. If  there is a mixed-race area, the Celtic factions will take over whatever towns are controlled by Celtic peoples.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Celtic_tribes

Some factions like the Batavii, Boii and Nervii tend to be somewhat Germanicised.

  • Belgae - Based off Britons, one of the factions of Rise of the Barbarians.

IberianEdit

CtW info: Celtiberians cover most of the Iberian Peninsula, but the Lusitanians can be used to represent the various Balkan, East African and German sub-factions. If a Balkan or Germanic faction invades areas where they are present and fighting against others, they will be assimilated into the invading faction. It's not likely that the Lusitani will be able to attack a region as far away as Ethiopia so soon. Like most barbaric factions they tend to use their tribe name as the names of their leaders.

GermanicEdit

A useful guide on Celto-Germanic tribes ...

HellenicEdit

Hellenic and Hellenistic factions are known for being single-city entities. Usually the cities that they live in are heavily fortified with towers and also are very well-developed. A few of them such as Emporion and Salona often have a mix of Greek and native units.

EmporionEdit

Shares units with the Lusitanians, but is based off Chremonideans

HellenisticEdit

In areas with mixed-race populations such as Gresoallra, Illyria or Lacetania, the Bactrians are tricked out as the Greek city-states. If attacked by Greek factions, the cities are converted to their side.

CyrenaicaEdit

Although clearly Numidian in appearance, it has elite Greek units.

IranianEdit

Iranians tend to be divided into different city-states based on the territories they control. While some like the Armenians and Parthians host eastern-style architecture, others such as the Sarmatians are purely nomadic.Many factions in the eastern part of the CtW map tend to be Graeco-Iranian.

SkythikoiEdit

Although somewhat similar to the Sarmatians, they also recruit Greek-style units, such as Hoplitai.

DahaeEdit

YuezhiEdit

ArabianEdit

Most of these factions are all based off Numidia, yet may use different units, ie the Gaetuli, Garamantes and so forth. Lybim-type units are commonly associated with them.
